“If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that’s a full day, that’s a heck of a day.
You do that seven days a week you’re going to have something special.”
What’s Important in life are 3 things, where you started, where you are and where you’re gonna be!
Legends Grill CT will sponsor youth leagues, such as little league baseball, youth basketball, midget auto racing, pee wee hockey, soccer leagues and Pop Warner football. We will work with our local Professional athletes in promoting those leagues through instructional lectures and seminars. It is our belief that if we help young athletes craft their trade at an early age it will increase the future success of Connecticut-raised sports participants exponentially.
“It’s not if we win or lose, it’s if we play the game that matters”
As an example, The Walter Camp Football Foundation has been very popular within the community since its inception in 1967. Last year this annual event brought in roughly 75 professional athletes to New Haven. Legends Grill CT plans to participate with this charity by giving time to the foundation’s various causes and efforts. Similarly, the annual Joe Namath Football Camp at Western CT State University will be another sports program to earn our support. More charitable groups such as Connecticut Special Olympics, Connecticut Sports Foundation, The Children’s Hospital at Yale New Haven, The Obie Harrington-Howes Foundation, Strike 3 Foundation to name a few will be deserving of volunteer efforts from our staff so youths who participate in sports and also children who cope with serious illness will all benefit from our time and efforts.
*A list of causes, programs and foundations we currently support can be viewed in our charities and causes page.
State high school, college and traveling athletic programs will provide additional venues for our involvement. It should be noted that it is not the level of play that determines our level of support. The Legends Grill CT staff will be honored to be involved with athletes of any age or skill level, simply because, it is participating in the event that matters most.
The Employee Benefits section for this website further explains how Legends Grill CT will reward staff for volunteerism at charitable events.
At Legends Grill CT we understand our volunteer Team must extend beyond the walls of our amazing restaurant in order to enrich the lives of those less fortunate or our sustainability in the community simply won’t be endless. We must be a leader in the community through our philanthropic vision and for that to transcend into individual neighborhoods. We must reach out to our patron neighbors to assist us with recognizing areas of need in order for us to all come together and fulfill our common purpose of enriching lives that can’t be left behind. In recognition for our patrons participation we will offer our volunteer’s a complimentary entree in our All State Sports Bar. By becoming a Team Captain and sponsoring a cause near and dear to them they will receive a complimentary diner for up to (4) people in our All State Sports Bar as a way of recognizing their community spirit.
Our Foundation starts with great leadership vision but isn’t a Winning formula until we can get everyone involved in helping make our individual communities stronger. By helping those less fortunate get on their feet and find their God’s given purpose we can turn hardship into a lesson; that with sacrifice, a commitment to short term goals and perseverance anyone can get through their struggles. As those lives we help move forward we hope in turn they will be compelled to help future generations who also face difficult challenges to improve their lives because only in giving do we receive the gift for life’s true enrichment.
Legends Grill CT will also be a strong partner with our local professional athletes by assisting them in raising awareness through their own personal charities and/or foundations. That alone will attract our brightest stars to casually visit the restaurant which will in turn bring a special aura and buzz to the building on a consistent basis. The invitation for an area professional athlete to speak at one of our educational box lunch field trips will bring notoriety to them locally and continue to solidify the Brand in bridging our professional athletes with the community. Since we can select from a pool of hundreds of Professional Athletes we will always feature a different Athlete of the day, which over time will build an amazing awareness within our sports community for everyone to recognize and remember for generations.
